The Relationship Of Hr Professionals' Online Experiences With Perceptions Of Organizational Hiring And Promotion Of Online Graduates, Gundars Egons Kaupins, James Edward Wanek, Malcolm Paulin Coco

Management Faculty Publications and Presentations

Based on a survey of 264 human resources professionals from 10 Society for Human Resource Management chapters in Texas, the authors investigated how human resources professionals accept online degrees compared to degrees based on face-to-face coursework for hiring and promotion purposes. If respondents were satisfied with their own online course experiences, they were most likely to view their organization as treating an online bachelor’s or master’s degree as equivalent to a traditional degree for hiring or promotion purposes. Having had online courses in the past or having completed an online degree had no similar and significant association with ...


Learning During The Transition Period: How Identifying Executives As Designate Ceos Affects Their Learning, Rida Mitri Elias 2014 Western University

Learning During The Transition Period: How Identifying Executives As Designate Ceos Affects Their Learning, Rida Mitri Elias

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

CEO succession is an important event in organizations. Around 80% of succession events are relay successions, where a CEO successor is identified a few years before the actual succession event takes place. The success of relay succession compared to horse race and outside successions has been credited to the learning that an heir apparent acquires during the transition period. However, to my knowledge, none of the CEO succession research examines the learning process of heirs apparent.

This study attempts to fill this gap through empirical qualitative research. Using a combination of learning and sensemaking perspectives, this study builds premises proposing ...

Exchange Rate, Market Size And Human Capital Nexus Foreign Direct Investment – A Bound Testing Approach For Pakistan, Naveed Iqbal Chaudhry, Mian Saqib Mehmood, Asif Mehmood, Bahaudin G. Mujtaba

Mian Saqib Mehmood

This study investigates the role of exchange rate, market size and human capital for attracting foreign direct investment (FDI). In this regard, time series data on annual basis has been collected for the period 1985–2010 and an Augmented Dickey–Fuller (ADF) and Phillips–Perron (PP) unit root tests are utilized to determine the stationarity of the variables. An autoregressive distributed lag (ARDL) bounds testing approach to co-integration was applied as all the variables in the model are first level stationary, e.g. I(1). The empirical findings of this study confirm the long run relationship among the variables. However ...


Multinational Enterprise Parent-Foreign Subsidiary Governance, Bassam Elias Farah 2014 Western University

Multinational Enterprise Parent-Foreign Subsidiary Governance, Bassam Elias Farah

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This dissertation investigates how a multinational enterprise’s (MNE) corporate headquarters governs its foreign subsidiaries. It draws on agency theory, prospect theory, and corporate governance literatures to develop a framework that describes select MNE parent-foreign subsidiary governance mechanisms expected to predict foreign subsidiary performance, measured as foreign subsidiary survival and profitability.

To test this framework, I first conducted a pilot Canadian study. It was followed by the main multi-country study. The Canadian study used mixed methods. It analyzed quantitative data, compiled from different sources, and qualitative data, collected through personal interviews with subsidiary managers. The main multi-country study used survival ...


Designing A Comprehensive Anti-Corruption Strategy For The Private Sector, V-Tsien Gaius Fan 2014 Northeastern University

Designing A Comprehensive Anti-Corruption Strategy For The Private Sector, V-Tsien Gaius Fan

Criminology and Justice Policy Dissertations

I examine the possibility of designing a comprehensive anti-corruption counterstrategy for the private sector. The first prong of my study determines the relationships between the environment, management, and business controls in their effect on combating corruption. Quantitative analysis of data from the World Bank's Enterprise Surveys was performed in order to frame a proper context in which measures against corruption can be considered. These relationships were then considered in the subcontext of region, industry, and company size to determine variation. Results show that business controls are generally resilient to the effects of management. Management effects are resilient to environmental ...

When Does A Platform Create Value By Limiting Choice?, Ramon Casadesus-Masanell, Hanna Halaburda 2014 SelectedWorks

When Does A Platform Create Value By Limiting Choice?, Ramon Casadesus-Masanell, Hanna Halaburda

Hanna Halaburda

We present a theory for why it might be rational for a platform to limit the number of applications available on it. Our model is based on the observation that even if users prefer application variety, applications often also exhibit direct network effects. When there are direct network effects, users prefer to consume the same applications to benefit from consumption complementarities. We show that the combination of preference for variety and consumption complementarities gives rise to (i) a commons problem (to better satisfy their individual preference for variety, users have an incentive to consume more applications than the number that ...


Retaliating Against Customer Interpersonal Injustice In A Singaporean Context: Moderating Roles Of Self-Efficacy And Social Support, Violet Ho, Naina Gupta 2014 University of Richmond

Retaliating Against Customer Interpersonal Injustice In A Singaporean Context: Moderating Roles Of Self-Efficacy And Social Support, Violet Ho, Naina Gupta

Management Faculty Publications

Few studies have examined the relationship between customer injustice and employees' retaliatory counterproductive behaviors toward customers, and those that have done so have been conducted in a Western setting. We extend these studies by examining the relationship in a Singaporean context where retaliatory behaviors by employees might be culturally constrained. While the previously established positive relationship between customer injustice and counterproductive behaviors was not replicated using peer-reported data from employees across two hotels in Singapore, we found that individuals' self-efficacy and perceived social support moderated it. Specifically, the injustice-to-counterproductive behaviors relationship was positive for individuals with high self-efficacy, and for ...


A Conceptualization And Empirical Examination Of The Effects Of Marketing Alignment On Franchising Relationships, Joseph Matthes 2014 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

A Conceptualization And Empirical Examination Of The Effects Of Marketing Alignment On Franchising Relationships, Joseph Matthes

Dissertations and Theses from the College of Business Administration

Franchising is a widely utilized business format that continues to grow in popularity both domestically and abroad. Through the recruitment of franchisees as agents, franchisors are able to access additional resources and rapidly expand their networks. The marketing relationship between franchising partners presents unique opportunities and challenges due to this captive and codependent channel structure. In order to fill a gap in the literature and better understand franchisee-franchisor relationships, the author conceptualizes marketing alignment as being comprised of both agreement and cooperation across the dimensions of strategies, operations, and values. A conceptual model is developed that addresses the following research ...

Employee Voice And Recipients' Appraisals/Reactions: The Effects Of Speech Style, Voice Type, And Voicer Status, Yongsuhk Jung 2014 Western University

Employee Voice And Recipients' Appraisals/Reactions: The Effects Of Speech Style, Voice Type, And Voicer Status, Yongsuhk Jung

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

The purpose of this research was to investigate the consequences of employee voice (i.e., the expression of information, ideas, or concerns for organizational development), primarily focusing on voice assertiveness (i.e., the extent of voicing individuals’ assertive expressions) and its influences on perceptual appraisals and reactions of voice recipients. Based on a literature review, I proposed a process model that described the influential mechanisms of voice assertiveness. I also defined moderating conditions that may guide the nature of the influence processes, such as voice type (promotive voice vs. prohibitive voice), voicer status (subordinate vs. peer), and recipient core self-evaluations ...

The Magic Of (A)Ffective Management, Ryan Weir

Charleston Library Conference

(A)ffective management is a people-first approach to managing employees. After all, employees and supervisors are people first. No matter how hard any individual may try, inevitably the stress and strain of life outside of work can and will bleed through into the work environment. The (A)ffective and effective manager understands this and incorporates this understanding into how he/she interacts with superiors and subordinates in the work environment on a daily basis. This article offers strategies on how to be an (A)ffective manager.

Lean Construction, Jonathan Howell 2014 Bond University

Lean Construction, Jonathan Howell

Public Infrastructure Bulletin

Traditional project delivery and procurement methodology has evolved into an inherently inefficient and adversarial process. Lean construction provides an approach to modern construction that significantly improves collaboration, innovation, delivery, control and quality within projects. Lean construction is based on fundamentals such as maximum value generation, flows of activities, pull demand systems and perfection in execution at every level of the project. For this reason identification of the real value of lean construction within the construction industry is required.

An analysis of traditional methods has revealed significant deficiencies in current delivery methods and efficiency standards. This has subsequently illuminated the key ...
